Vegan BBQ Sandwich

Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan (of course!)

Growing up in the South, BBQ sandwiches were a staple. As I no longer feast on our dear pig friends, I still love the taste of a great BBQ sandwich. Luckily, the humble spaghetti squash is here to save the day (and the pigs!). Resembling a “pulled pork” texture, the spaghetti squash along with a fabulous sauce are the perfect healthy and compassionate way to enjoy a delectable BBQ sandwich without harming the pigs or your health!



For the “meat”:

  • One medium spaghetti squash

For the sauce:

For serving:

  • Vegan hamburger buns

How to make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Place each squash half facedown onto the baking sheet, then bake them for one hour.
  4. While the squash bakes, place and stir together the sauce ingredients in a medium-sized pot over medium heat until hot, then simmer the sauce with the lid on until the squash is done baking.
  5. Once the squash is done baking, remove it from the oven and use a fork to scrape out the “spaghetti’ strands (they should pull out of the squash skin very easily).
  6. Place the spahgetti squash strands into the sauce and stir to evenly coat the squash.
  7. Serve the BBQ in the buns.
  8. Enjoy!
